# About the Articles Folder

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Why a separate folder for "articles"? This requires a long, complex, and nuanced answer. But I don't have the time to explain it again here, so I'll simple hint that the driving concept behind this is the [[Signal to Noise Ratio]].

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

...okay a little more explanation. For millennia, humanity didn't have easy access to quality information. For ≈20 years, humanity has WAAYYY too much access to information. We've been trained to over-collect this information. But we're finding out that this strategy leads to under-thinking and overwhelm. (See: Anywhere I share opinions about this.)

There are healthier strategies to managing the NOISE out there. This is one tiny tactic amidst the broader strategy of better knowledge management.

## Commentary

Please don't go overboard with numbering things. We’re just using a basic pre-made map as a fixed *spatial constellation* upon which to easily add dots of new interests. Too much structure stifles innovation and organic, emergent growth.

One theory Ray has, Axons sends a neurotransmitter (a chemical) to dendrites across a synapse, where the neurotransmitter is broken down (maybe a chemical reaction of some kind), then the result is the bouton (a cell filled with chemicals), which resides on the spines of dendrites which receive the signal.

My contribution: A habit has always been so fascinating to me. A habit is a mirror, it gives what you give it, and what you were given is what you'll give. It's the immediate expression of the law of cause and effect. Just like newtons law of conservation states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction; so with habits are that for every action, taking the same action again will require less effort. And all things being equal, our unconscious behavior defaults to the easier pathway.

Neural connections were made and repeated actions optimize them. They become more efficient. We can only surmise as to why, but to me it has clear evolutionary advantages. Any action we take burns calories and uses either our physical muscles, our mental muscles (like the anterior cingulate cortex, which is a crucial player in willpower management), or both. By making a repeated action easier, less energy is used, less willpower is required (less [define:]cognitive resources), and fewer calories are burned—all of which lead to a better chance of survival.

**The Asymptotic Curve**: Understanding Habits & Expertise through Memory & Strength Training Disciplines

The same asymptotic curve that correlates with habit formation also appears with becoming an expert at something. See Ericsson 1993.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

To leap to a new level of development beyond the plateau, we must get out of our newly established Automatic Mindset, and return to a Beginner's "Cognitive" Mindset. That's how to breakthrough the plateau.

# Groundhog Day (1993)

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

I love these types of movies where the protagonist replays events. It's a kind of two-hour existential simulation.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Groundhog Day dances in sync with the Buddhist thoughts on suffering through the stages of [[Samsara]] for Phil Connors - Cycle of Birth Death (Cycle of Dragon and Phoenix)

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

In Buddhism, Samsara is the cycle of becoming driven by our karmic intentional activity. Eventually, through repeating the same day for decades, he accepts his fate, tries less, and gives more. Only then does he break the cycle of Groundhog Day.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Here's the thing, we're all repeating the same day for decades, and something deep within me feels that just like Phil, we too can slightly break away from the cycle of Samsara by accepting more, trying less, and giving more. But, but, but...I don't know if I want to just yet!

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

#note/question❓ Why is the pull of Samsara so strong? What does Jane English's interpretation of the [[Tao De Ching]] say (it's in the second chapter, in the appended notes section)?

Eventually, *does not try anymore*, which allows for true participation and enjoyment. Every moment of his day becomes appreciated. Only after Phil Connors gives up trying to "win the girl" by possessing her, can a space open up for true intimacy.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

#note/question❓ How does Phil's journey compare to Joseph Knecht's journey in [[1943 📚 The Glass Bead Game]]? Or [[Siddhartha]]'s for that matter?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Although the idea of replaying opportunities in life could seem like a gift, it becomes a trap if we become consumed by it. This is where each action of ours has consequences. And this is the law of [[Karma]]: Phil makes choices. Each choice leads to a new reality. We often choose the cycle of Samsara and suffering. But the profound existential message is that, even in our darkest hour, even when we are at our lowest point, within that fire of suffering are the seeds of renewal—of Spring. This is a form of the [[Dragon and Phoenix]].

Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy and religious beliefs. Ueshiba's goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury. Aikido is often translated as "the way of unifying life energy" or as "the way of harmonious spirit".

Using alliteration, it's: getting **stronger from stressors**, more settled from shaking, more adaptable from attacks.

In a way, antifragility is a faster form of [[Natural Selection]].

Antifragility is a property of systems that increase in capability, resilience, or robustness as a result of stressors, shocks, volatility, noise, mistakes, faults, attacks, or failures.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

It's fundamentally different from the concepts of resiliency (i.e. the ability to recover from failure) and robustness (that is, the ability to resist failure).

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better.

# Attention

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Attention is what the mind is focused on—and what it has been focused on over the recent past (the past 72 hours is simple way to look at it). Everything that enters the mind in the past 72 hours affects the next hour of thought. That's what it's so important to Guard and Guide Your Mind wisely.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Guard what enters your mind, and what stays in the mind. Reduce distractions. Reduce attentional switching.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

### Subsets of Attention

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

**Focus** — The ability to maintain focus is of crucial importance in any aspect of modern living. Without focus, life drifts from stimuli to stimuli, with very little consistent [[Direction (re Flow)]].

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

**Residual Attention** — Your *attention* isn't just about what you are thinking about right now; it's more so composed of everything that's entered your mind over past 72 hours.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

[[Poor Diet]] — Sugar makes people act impulsively; they become more susceptible to distractions. Grains can cause brain fog to lowers mood and Enthusiasm. Both dramatically raise blood sugar levels causing the secretion of Insulin. The resulting fall of blood glucose levels causes hunger, irritability, and energy crashes.

Average Diet — Even an average diet can still have several micro-nutrient deficiencies that can be the cause of headaches, lower [[Energy (re Flow)]] levels, mood swings, a lack of enthusiasm.

*Support, Extend, Challenge*

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

“those verbs emerged from work we did trying to understand active reading to figure out ways to help high school students become active readers about “stuff” teachers were teaching. It occurred to us that all new information or ideas must support, extend, or challenge existing ideas or information you already have and that has led to those verbs being cognitive tools for students” Bob Bain

"Years ago, we were working on an R&D project in curriculum with high school students in Detroit. The students “read” texts just as I did when I was in high school – skimming it to find sentences to copy to “answer” teacher assigned or questions at back of text. I don’t think I ever read a complete chapter while a high school student, simply skimmed and copied enough to get me a check or a “C”. No active reader or thinker I, but active skimmer! I “studented” my way through high school, not learning much. And we were seeing “studenting” among students with whom we were working.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

We puzzled over what made more thoughtful, active readers and started tracking briefly our “no-longer-studenting” reading practices. We concluded that before reading something we had some theory or conjecture about what we’d find there, no matter how vague or naïve. Then, what we were reading either “supported” or “extended” or "challenged’ our pre-reading ideas.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

No great insight, really, as others like Piaget had asserted similar things in a far more nuanced language (assimilation/ assimilating and accommodation/accommodating ).

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

However, my colleagues and I wondered if we could turn those thinking verbs – support, extend, challenge – into cognitive tools students could use to do less studenting and more thinking when reading.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

So, we trialed a new approach to assigned reading in our R&D work:

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

1. Asked students first for a freewrite conjecture about the topic so students could see what they thought.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

2. Then assigned reading by asking students to identify or explain how the text “supported,” “extended” or “challenged” their thinking.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Turned out to have some power. Students began to look at texts in relation to their thinking and not some pre-packaged questions teachers asked.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

We’ve used this in every curricular project since (about 18 years of it). I use in my own teaching, often employing those verbs when reading multiple texts (e.g., how does Dewey’s essay support, extend, or challenge piece by Thorndike? In what ways do they support, extend, or challenge your thinking about learning?)

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

On last thing: I use those verbs in my re-purposing my notes when working in earnest on a problem I need to write about or teach. The verbs become “functional” tags that define a relationship among notes or ideas – these support each other, or extend each other, or challenge each other."

That's how chunking intersects with expertise, intuition, and [[Deliberate Practice]]. Speaking more to [[K.

George A. Miller, one of the top scientists of the 20th century, in his classic 1956 paper, "[[The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two]]," coined the terms "working memory" and "chunking."  He discovered that the number of digits people could hold in mind before their memory overloaded was remarkably consistent across all people.  So pervasive was this number that his famous article opened with, “My problem is that I’ve been persecuted by an integer.”

The chunks by which the information is grouped is meant to improve short-term retention of the material, thus bypassing the limited capacity of working memory."

Causality is, by which one process or state, a cause, contributes to the production of another process or state, an effect, where the cause is partly responsible for the effect, and the effect is partly dependent on the cause. In general, a process has many causes, which are also said to be causal factors for it, and all lie in its past.

Attention is what the mind is focused on—and what it has been focused on over the recent past (the past 72 hours is simple way to look at it). Everything that enters the mind in the past 72 hours affects the next hour of thought. That's what it's so important to Guard and Guide Your Mind wisely.

**Focus** — The ability to maintain focus is of crucial importance in any aspect of modern living. Without focus, life drifts from stimuli to stimuli, with very little consistent [[Direction (re Flow)]].

**Residual Attention** — Your *attention* isn't just about what you are thinking about right now; it's moreso composed of everything that's entered your mind over past 72 hours.

Distractions — Distractions come in many forms and factors. Below is a list of major sources of distraction to safeguard against:

[[Poor Diet]] — Sugar makes people act impulsively; they become more susceptible to distractions. Grains can cause brain fog to lowers mood and Enthusiasm. Both dramatically raise blood sugar levels causing the secretion of Insulin. The resulting fall of blood glucose levels causes hunger, irritability, and energy crashes.

Average Diet — Even an average diet can still have several micro-nutrient deficiencies that can be the cause of headaches, lower [[Energy (re Flow)]] levels, mood swings, a lack of enthusiasm.

# Conditions of Flow

### The Three Major Conditions of Flow

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

The three conditions of flow, as described by Mihaly are:

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

1. **Clear proximal (nearby) goals**

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

2. **Clear and immediate feedback**

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

3. **A balance between perceived challenge and skill**

### More Detailed Conditions of Flow

> "Of course, this is not to say that these are the only factors that affect the degree to which one becomes involved in an activity." - Mihaly et al

They then mention the level of importance ([[Enthusiasm (re Flow)]]) to a person and how their actions in the moment align with their character and values ([[Enthusiasm (re Flow)]] and [[Direction (re Flow)]]). Mentioned elsewhere by Mihaly et al are the additional negative factors of distractions ([[Attention (re Flow)]]) and low self-esteem ([[Enthusiasm (re Flow)]]).

Let's look at those three conditions of flow again, this time, relating them to major factors controlling them and giving you the levers needed to master them.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

1. **Clear proximal goals** — Right now, what am I doing and what do I need to do?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

This is all about [[Direction (re Flow)]]. Are you clear on your direction? It's worth noting that even if this activity isn't part of your big goals in life, you can still be in flow as long as you are clear on what you're doing in the moment. Essentially, you are clear on your next steps, your micro-direction, your micro-goals.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

2. **Clear and immediate feedback** — How am I doing?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Clarity of [[Direction (re Flow)]] is the biggest factor here.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

3. **A balance between perceived challenge and skill** — If I'm not in flow, what can I do to help induce it?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Conceptually, this is the holy grail. Practically, you gotta deftly adjust your current situation. Technically, there are specific "recipes" to use that will help. [[Balancing Challenge and Skill]] is the most important condition because it's the result of every element that dictates quality experience: [[Direction (re Flow)]], [[Enthusiasm (re Flow)]], [[Attention (re Flow)]], and [[Energy (re Flow)]].

Now that we have a clear list of the conditions of flow, we need to relate them to the [[Four Factors of Flow]].

# Evergreen notes are things or statements about things

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Many evergreen notes should be statements with clear opinion. That's because it forces you to really think about what you're trying to say. However, these "clear opinions" need "clear things" to talk about! What are these "things"?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

"THINGS" like:

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

*Concepts*: which can and should stand on their own

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

*Known Things*: "The magna carta was signed in 1215"

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

*Standards*: Things with a pre-set language (whether that's programming, Things that follow a process, manuals, etc

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

examples include anything from mathematical formulas, to the basics of language, to the process of putting a bike together

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

*Definitions, terms, topics, persons, places, or generally any other nouns.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

These THING-based notes will naturally spawn ideas of your own that have clear opinions (or statements). For example:

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

The note on the `[[Magna Carta]]` (Clear Thing) can then link to a personalized note titled `[[No one is above the law]]` (Clear Opinion), which could link to another note titled `[[Protests can invoke radical change]]` (Clear Opinion).

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

A note on `[[Defining a variable]]` (Clear Thing) can link to a personalized note on `[[Understanding variables leads to higher level thinking]]` (Clear Opinion).

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

A note on the concept `[[Like begets like]]` (kinda both Clear Opinion and Fact) can link to the opinion `[[The neural formation of habits are additive]]` (Clear Opinion) and a bunch of other notes. See this example below:

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

![[Evergreen note links to other notes.png]]

In this way, Thing-based notes are sturdy dots that we can then connect to Opinion-based notes through the natural process of note-making.

### Extra commentary

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

There seem to be "things" and "opinion about things", and it's nice to have both. The "things" act as pillars of—or waypoints to—acquired knowledge. Guiding markers and reminders. The things are the latticework upon which our "opinions about things" can hang. I suspect a healthy PKM system needs a balance of both.

*The Framing Effect*: People tend to avoid risk when a positive frame is presented but seek risks when a negative frame is presented. Gain and loss are defined in the scenario as descriptions of outcomes (e.g., lives lost or saved, disease patients treated and not treated, etc.).

In the social sciences, framing comprises a set of concepts and theoretical perspectives on how individuals, groups, and societies, organize, perceive, and communicate about reality. Framing can manifest in thought or interpersonal communication.

# Evergreen notes

Note-takers _“churn and burn”_ through their notes. They take them for a specific short-term (“just-in-time”) purpose—like a test or a project. When the milestone concludes, the notes lose their value. This type of note-taking doesn’t accumulate long-term value.

1. The more ways you can access a note, the better chance you have of retrieving it. Can I find it when I want it?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

2. The more contexts a note has, the better the chance you have of discovering it. Can I stumble upon it?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

3. Most notes should try to not go longer than a page. Long notes say many things. Therefore, when you link to a long note, your link isn't as clear. Confusion can result from the vagueness.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Some people are rigid in their thinking that "one idea should equal one note". I'm much more relaxed and "Laissez Faire" about this.

4. Making connections between notes fosters new insights, enhances note retrieval, and improves our understanding of the linked notes.

5. Getting repetitions in our library improves our memory.

# Fluid Frameworks

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

*Fluid frameworks are non-rigid, highly-flexible organizing structures that you can use as needed.* When we talk about fluid frameworks in the "Linking Your Thinking" System, we're mainly referring to higher-order notes like MOCs and the Home note (but a balanced use of MOCs, folders, tags, and queries can also maintain a fluid structure).

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Fluid frameworks are not mutually exclusive. That means a note with its link in an MOC, doesn't exclusively live in the MOC note. A note can live and link freely. A note can be discovered in as many places as it's referenced. These are the fundamentals of linking notes together.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Now with higher-order notes like MOCs, we can fluidly add any structure, at any time. But these frameworks offer unique attributes to allow us to work more fluidly than ever before.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

### Fluid Frameworks vs Rigid Frameworks

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Wow...So a fluid framework is a non-essential supporting structure.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Whereas, a typical framework—like a folder—is an essential supporting structure. Delete the folder, and you delete the files within.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

And that's because folders are not fluid; they are a rigid framework. They reduce the number of ways you have to access the notes trapped within. Now it's worth noting, we do have Global Search, and we can link to notes within folders...so that's better than it used to be...but there is still no removing the friction that comes from having to twirl down folders X, Y, and Z, just to get to Idea Omega.)

So even though folders alone are rigid, if you expertly use Fluid Frameworks—i.e. HIGHER-ORDER NOTES—to support your linked knowledge, then you can also work back in some smart applications of folders.

That's why we're here: to become skilled and confident with how we are deploying the tools that we have to structure our notes in the best way possible.

Psychic Entropy encompasses anything that leads to a feeling of chaos. It's a frenetic energy. It's feeling scatter-brained, constantly distracted, overwhelmed, overrun, and burnt out. It's a constant battle; and we must be diligent. We will be bent, bowed, and bloodied. We will lose our way countless times.

# Habits carry a ton of hidden inertia

While some [[Positive Feedback Loop]]s show immediate results, many times progress is hidden until much further along in time. This type of progress, where it's not obvious and visible is basically "hidden inertia".

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Whatever is happening above ground, below ground it's like trying to push a railroad car; nothing seems to happen for the longest time, but eventually the momentum build and takes on a life of its own, just like Jim Collins [[Flywheel Effect]] or Shelley's [[Frankenstein Monster]].

# In what ways can we form useful relationships between notes?

Are you into personal knowledge management (PKM)? Are you confused about when to use a **folder** versus a **tag** versus a **link** versus a **Map of Content**? Let’s explore each “relationship-builder” and how we can use them expertly.

* Top-down categorizing has gotten a bad rap. It has a place.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

```

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

* Bottom-up creating is great, but it needs a bit of top-down structure as your library grows. But using just folders is the WRONG way.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

* **Maps of Contents (MOCs)** are game-changers.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

A flat structure of notes — i.e. one big folder — is “frictionless”. There is no thinking “now where exactly does this go?” However, over time it becomes messy and overwhelming. To overcome the chaos, we need to build healthy, flexible frameworks that can grow with our knowledge over time.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Let’s examine the known— and lesser known — ways we form useful relationships between notes.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

### Direct Links

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

![Image for post](https://miro.medium.com/max/1408/1*SMU0M-iBKedBR6PwUKrayw.png)

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Direct links are the strongest type of relationship. They are the purest and most explicit way of connecting two notes. This is the core method of growing a healthy, dynamic zettelkasten.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Despite the proclamations, direct links alone are not enough. They do not allow for easy, dependable high-level navigation. They are a system of streets connecting one block to another. But sometimes you want to zoom out and view the map.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

### Folders

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Folders are rigid and exclusionary by their nature. Whatever is in a folder lives separated from the main collection. It’s a rigid hierarchy that imposes order. Without special workarounds this limits note accessibility, discourages interdisciplinary thinking, and stunts the long-term growth of a complex and interesting Zettelkasten.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

There are some strategic uses for folders, but their overuse may be a sign that the user is uncomfortable with other, arguably better methods of building relationships between notes while maintaining the long-term health of their digital library. If you have some quixotic notion about creating a digital library that acts as an interesting conversation partner — folders don’t make it as easy.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

What about for projects? Depending on the use cases, a person might like using folders for projects.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

* If your goal is to manage projects, folders are great — maybe even ideal. You might decide that you want your projects to be actively walled-off units.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

* But once they are final, you would need to take the extra steps of reformulating any good stuff into your main digital library.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

A possible use for a folder is as a temporary inbox, or “incubation” folder. As long as you view these research streams as temporary staging grounds, to be deleted or assimilated with the Borg- er, I mean, your main-brain-frame; you should be fine. Otherwise, that inbox folder can get awfully crufty.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Another possible use for folders would be for “very clearly defined” notes. For example, things like: Images, People, Quotes, and Source Materials (things written by other people). You don’t have to use these folders; you could easily add their contents into the main vault; but you might find it keeps things slightly more tidy.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

But know this: retreating too much into project-based folder management will cripple your long-term thinking partner (i.e., your zettelkasten) from growing complex, dynamic, and interesting cross-genre connections. You won’t have a zettelkasten, you’ll have a collection of silo-ed folders. Those are massive costs to consider.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

That said, limiting accessibility may be ideal for private information like finances, health, and private journaling. Then a folder is the perfect instrumental to intentionally cordon off those notes from the rest.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

### Tags

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Tags are relatively weak associations, but don’t discount them. They are easy ways to quickly filter large swathes of notes. Tags are more fluid: one note can have multiple tags. The problem is that _tags alone don’t scale_.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Say you have a `#PermanentNote` tag or tag page. Whenever you take notes on something you read or watch, you apply that tag. It’s great when only 50 notes have that tag. It’s far less useful when 500 notes have that tag.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

#### Multiple Tags

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

A partial solution is to use multiple tags, so you can search for: `#PermanentNote` `#habit` to filter in only those results.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

> But the problem here is that you have to remember each tag!

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

What happens when you can’t remember that when you’re tagging a new note? You end up using `#improvement` or something else. Sure, maybe you can remember this single `#habit` example. But over time you’ll lose track of how to tag a new note in a way you can reliably retrieve (meaning that it will scale well and you’ll remember it). By the way, software that allows for “starred” notes is just exercising a form of tagging.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

#### Tags with Saved Boolean Search

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

Saved Searches are another partial and robust solution. You can save a tag search like `#PermanentNote` AND `#habit`.
